General Glucomannan Dosage Information

Some considerations for people taking glucomannan include:
 
  • For many forms of glucomannan, it is a good idea to drink a full glass of water with the supplement (to make sure it does not get stuck in your throat).
     
  • When first starting glucomannan, it is best to start with a low dose and then gradually increase to a higher dose. This helps to prevent digestive side effects that can be caused by increasing your fiber intake too quickly.
     
  • Try not to inhale glucomannan powder, as there have been reports of it causing breathing problems when accidentally inhaled.
     
  • If you are unsure about anything related to glucomannan dosing in general, please talk with your healthcare provider.
